The Crisis Management Team works to prepare the university for a variety of crisis situations. The team is composed of employees from across campus and meets regularly to discuss ongoing and timely issues, focusing on planning, preparation, and procedures that are models of good practice. In addition, the team takes part in training and tabletop exercises throughout the year to test and enhance the University’s procedures for and response to an emergency on campus.

A primary responsibility of the team is to make recommendations on how to lead the university through the crisis. The crisis management team will manage the crisis from beginning through the recovery period, making determinations about the scope and nature of the response, as well as coordinating communication of information about the crisis to all internal and external audiences. The crisis management team is committed to building effective partnerships and collaborating with local, county, and state officials whenever a crisis situation involves such agencies.
